James Shirley quotes

Victorious men of earth, no more
Proclaim how wide your empires are;
The glories of our blood and state
Are shadows, not substantial things;
Only the actions of the just
Smell sweet and blossom in their dust.
They stoop to fate,
And must give up their murmuring breath,
When they, pale captives, creep to death.
